Postcard from Anchorage, Alaska postmarked Jan 25, 1971

Our plane has been delayed. They say we won't leave until 1 pm. That's another hour. We're on a civilian plane (DC-8) Overseas National Airways. I can see those mountains on the front of the card from where I'm sitting. They are snowcovered and the sun is shining on them. I can't see the water from here but when we flew in it was frozen solid. Only had one problem flying, my ears kept popping till we leveled off at at about 26,000 ft.
